Kanoni & Mouse Island Tours

OVERVIEW

Located approximately 3 km from Corfu Town, Kanoni was once the capital and heart of Corfu, rich in nature, history and culture. The name Kanoni (canon) is derived from the canons that were protecting the city at the entrance of the lagoon. Nowadays, Kanoni is a quarter of Corfu Town, home to incredible views to two of Corfu's most popular spots: the whitewashed church of Vlacherna and Corfu's iconic landmark, the Mouse Island!


Connected to Kanoni via a causeway, lies the beautiful 17th-century church of Vlacherna, open to visitors only once per year, on the 6th of August where a religious celebration takes place. From this causeway, small boats depart regularly to Mouse Island. Mouse Island is a tiny island, with beautiful green tufts of tree and home to the tiny, 13th-century church of Pantokrator. Legend has it, that this little island was formed when the ship that had taken Odysseus back to Ithaca, his home port, was turned into stone by Poseidon, God of the sea, angry at being defied by the Phaeacians.


Visitors to Kanoni can savour their coffee in one of the cafés while enjoying the wonderful views over the Mouse Island, take a small boat to visit the Mouse Island or watch planes taking off and landing right over their head, as Kanoni is located just next to Corfu Airport!


Kanoni & Mouse Island is perhaps the most photographed spot of the island and very often included as a stop in Corfu day tours, such as our Private Tour to Achillion, Kanoni & Corfu Town, our Private Tour to Kanoni, Mon Repos & Corfu Town or our Private Corfu Custom Tour: Corfu in a day.
